1 BELO SUN RELEASES RESULTS FOR 74 ADDITIONAL DRILL HOLES AT ITS VOLTA GRANDE PROJECT TORONTO, July 24 th, 2013 Belo Sun Mining Corp. (TSX:BSX) has received assays for 74 additional drill holes (corresponding to 15,813 meters of drilling) at its Volta Gre Project. This drilling has been designed to exp upgrade the current resources estimate. The results being released today are being incorporated into a database will be used in the new mineral resource estimate expected to be completed in early Q3 this year. There are no pending results for the 2013 drill program. Belo Sun has completed 203,235 meters of drilling (767 drill holes) since April Included in this release are the assay results from seven drill holes from the Grota Seca deposit, 23 from the Ouro Verde deposit (most of them from the Junction OuroVerde/Grota Seca area), 35 from the South block area as well as nine from the Anapu Regional target. The complete results are presented below. Highlights from the holes included in this release are: For the South Block, at the Pequi target area, hole VVGD-688 intersected meters grading 6.32 g/t Au (from meters) shallow high grade intersections at the Itata target area in hole VVGD-693 with 5.88 meters grading 8.02 g/t Au (from meters) hole VVGD-656 with 4.40 meters grading g/t Au (from meters). Hole VVGD-689 (at the Grota Seca deposit) intersected meters grading 1.91 g/t Au (from meters). This intercept represents a new mineralized zone that is located parallel to the main Central zone. A significant down dip intercept at the Ouro Verde deposit Northwest extension in hole VVGD-640 at section 1150 NW with meters grading 2.08 g/t Au (from 25 meters). The Volta Gre Pit constrained mineral resources has 4.7 million ounces in the Measured Indicated category grading 1.68 g/t 2.2 million ounces grading 1.85 g/t in the Inferred category (see press release dated April 15 th 2013 Technical Report filed on SEDAR). The focus of this campaign has been to upgrade Inferred resources into the Measured Indicated category to exp the overall size of the resource.

5 Quality Assurance Quality Control The scientific technical information in this press release has been reviewed approved by David Gower, P. Geo., an advisor to Belo Sun a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument The exploration program is directly supervised by Mr. Carlos Cravo, P. Geo., Belo Sun s exploration manager. Belo Sun s procedures for hling drill core comprise initial description logging into a Microsoft Access database. Mineralized, suspected mineralized or not intervals in the drill holes are described in detail marked for sampling. Core is then cut in half with the right-h portion of the core put into plastic sample bags sealed. The left-h portion is returned to the core box is stored for future reference or study. Assay stard Blank samples are inserted every 20th sample. These samples are then delivered to ACME Labs sample preparation facility at the Volta Gre Project site. The assay samples are then fine-crushed to better than 80% passing 10 mesh screens, with an assay pulp split of up to 1000 grams pulverized to better than 85% passing 200 mesh screen. Samples are assayed at ACME Labs in Santiago, Chile, using a 50 gram fire assay with AAS finish. These QA/QC procedures provide several measures of data quality provide assurances to Belo Sun that the assay data is representative of the original sample.
